|Thread: Have a Rant|
You didn't need to put a capital R in remedial
|Thread: Brussels halts our vacuums|
Have you actually read the Act in full then John or are you relying on what the politicians who created it in secret are telling you to believe ? Because a lot of people disagree with them including Lawyers, civil liberty groups, privacy campaigners etc,
And have you ever heard of GCHQ and NSA, do you know the reason Edward Snowden is now a refugee in Russia and a wanted man in America etc etc
|I find it quite ironic that you are all moaning about Brussels and europe running our lives and politicians lying over vacuum cleaners, |
yet only a couple of weeks ago, when the political establishment overturned a ruling from the continent about our draconian mass data collection policy ( aka spying on the populations e-mail, texts,?phone calls then storing them for a year etc ) the collective view on this forum seemed to be that they were working to our own good, our trustworthy upstanding politicians only ever have our best interests at heart and want to keep us safe in our little beds at night.
You don't mind somebody listening to and reading all your private communication, but woe betide anybody making you use a little less powerfully Hoover !
|Crimps are a permanent joint which can be buried etc,connector blocks are not permanent and have to be accessible.|
Inside the switch box as long as it's deep enough you can use either, I just prefers crimps.
As for why not solder, time is money and using perfectly suitable crimps I could probably go in do the job and be back out by the time the soldering iron had warmed up
|Gonzo as part of part p if you are unhappy with any of the work you can take it up with building control, they will make their scheme provider give the installer the chance to put right their work or get someone else to put it right and charge the original Installer. You should have a certificate to say that work complies with building regulations, that should state the scheme provider and installer on|
|Jamie the electrical regs bs7671 is not law, it is there for not "illegal" to do anything, you can however use it in court to prove you are not liable for any incident that may arise from an unsafe installation by showing you followed its guidance. |
I'm a JIB approved electrician, 17th edition regs, was a registered part p competant installer while self employed and I now work for Plus Dane housing. As I said earlier Through crimps, done properly within the confines of the switch box are perfectly acceptable for extending cables and can be done easily by the op if he so wishes without needing to notify anybody. The new consumer unit the op wants however, is classed as a major job and has to be done by a registered competant installer and reported to the local building control
|Sorry Mike but what you said about alterations and additions is wrong, the whole installation doesn't need to be tested, for alterations a minor works certificate just covering the work done is sufficient, for additions to an existing consumer unit an installation certificate just covering the circuit added is fine.|
As Martin says through crimps are fine for extending cables but if there are existing conduits from the switch to the ceiling space / loft sometimes you can tie New cables to the existing cables and use them to pull up the conduit, you may even be able to pull down a bit of slack to re-terminate the existing cable!
The new consumer unit is classed as a part p reportable job though so would need an installer registered with one of the schemes
|Thread: RCM&E Subscription Rates in An Independent Scotland|
Which sea do you have to go over to get to Scotland ? lol
|Thread: another shed story|
12V Leisure battery would be better than lipo, you can get some little fluorescent strip lights from a Caravan or similar to hang up and it would last a lot longer too
|Thread: rcg 26cc|
All info I can find on RCGF 26cc engines puts the fuel oil mix at 25:1 to 40:1 if its new and you`re running it at 50:1 is there a possibility you might have warped the head a bit or damaged the liner / ring while running it previously ? if its a tight new engine with not enough oil a lot of heat can build up very quickly, might be worth while taking the head off and checking it for level and the liner for scoring or similar
